OKLAHOMA CITY -

A COVID-19 vaccine will be available to anybody in any category of Phase 1 or Phase 2 of the vaccine rollout, state health leaders announced Friday.

During a media Q&A with the Oklahoma State Department of Health, Deputy Commissioner Keith Reed said Oklahomans in congregate care or work locations as well as city, county or state leaders or elected officials, along with public health staff who support front-line workers, will be eligible to get the COVID-19 vaccine starting Monday.

Reed also said Oklahoma is well ahead of its goal to vaccinate any teachers or school administrators who want one, well-ahead of President Joe Biden's goal to have all teachers vaccinated by the end of March.
